Stevens Pass


With 27.1 miles done by six p.m., I hit Stevens Pass to find my mom sitting in a lawn chair at the trailhead, doing a crossword, and waiting for me to arrive without even knowing what day I’d get there (I finally found cell service a half mile out, much to her relief) – it’s great to have supportive parents! We checked in to a motel in nearby Skykomish where I took my first shower in 11 days.

Back on the trail tomorrow morning, I’ll have one week left to Canada – that’s it! Just 187 more miles. Once, that seemed like a huge distance; now, it’s a final, short hop before the end. I’m ready.

    One of my favorite places is Holden Village, accessible by boat from Lake Chelan at the Lucerne Boat Landing. You can there from the pct too, over Copper mountain. I never got to take that route. The North Cascades are so spectacular. Do you get close to Stehekin before crossing Hwy 2?
